#16859 new task

Tagging nice GSOC tickets

Reported by: michael2402 Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Trac Version:
Keywords: hack-weekend-2018-10 gsoc Cc: polyglot


We should add a special tag for Tickets that would be suited to be a part of a possible GSOC project.

Criteria for this include:

  • Fixing the ticket does not require a deep understanding of how JOSM works internally but only affects one component
  • The problem should be solvable in an incremental way (step by step), this makes mentoring easier
  • The task should take at least several days to complete
  • The use case of the feature should be easily explained to a non-OSM user.

Examples include:

  • #7308 - separate component, not deeply related to OSM.
  • #5641 - Improvements quickly visible
  • #7815 - Window sizing requires quite some try / error but works fine.

This tag will be separate from the Ideas page but helps us at writing some ideas there.
TODOs: Decide on a tag, then tag the tickets.
Timeframe: Before next GSOC

Other candidates:

  • #6450 - see how we can integrate JOSM with Taginfo
  • #6997 - add zoom controls to slippy map
  • #3841 - improve validator tooltips

For the tag I suggest "gsoc-candidate"

I clearly won't have time to mentor a student this year. Anyone willing to do that? Michael maybe?

I have time for one student, preferably core (but plugin is also OK). Me and Polyglot are already in contact with potential students.

I did not write any project idea. The only Core topic I could think of at the moment is GPX / Audio marker cleanup.
